Ministries: Children - Sunday School

 

Summer 2014:  Family Sunday School - 9:00am  
With emphasis on elementary aged children, led by Pastor Winnes.  Meets in the chapel.

 

Fall 2014:

Preschool Sunday School - 9:15 (ages 2-5)

As teachers model the love of God through words and actions, they demonstrate to the children that God is love and that He loves them with an everlasting love.  Through hearing Old and New Testament Bible stories, singing Bible songs, memorizing scripture, praying and completing activity pages, children will grow in their knowledge of God and how to live in obedience to Him.  Through center play, games and crafts, as teachers reinforce the lesson, children will have many opportunities to apply Bible truths in their social interactions.

When teachers present Jesus, using the Word of God, their actions and memorable activities, a foundation is laid for a child to receive Christ as Savior.

Elementary Sunday School - 9:15 (Grades 1-6)

Our Sunday School classes (for children grades one through five) provide age-appropriate Bible lessons and learning activities that teach the character of God, the work of Christ, and the means of living in right relationship to Him. This is accomplished by presenting the Bible as God's authoritative Word, which brings life, and gives meaning to our lives.

Each class is led by skilled teachers who are committed to communicating the truth of God's Word clearly and in appropriate application. Each teacher strives to live a life of devotion to Christ so that they can be an example that is consistent with the standards they teach.

Our ultimate goal is to come alongside parents in fulfilling the command "but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and His might, and the wonders He has done…that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children (Psalm 78:4, 6).

Sunday School hour format:
9:00 - 9:15 - drop off in classrooms
9:15 - 9:30 - All grades assemble for a time of singing, devotional, Bible memory, and prayer
9:30 - 10:25 - Students return to their classrooms for Bible lesson and activities.

*Children in grades 1-4 must be dropped off and picked up by a parent, guardian, or sibling in grade 5 or above.
